    Microsoft said four of the new patches -- software updates that write over
    glitches -- were of the highest priority and should be deployed immediately
    to protect users from potential criminal attacks on the Windows operating
    systems.

    Microsoft released 16 security patches to address 49 problems in its
    products, many of which were discovered by outside researchers who seek out
    such vulnerabilities to win cash bounties as well as notoriety for their
    technical prowess.

    Without him you will have a relaxed life without worrying about M$
    patches because they should be automatic! This assumes you
    actually care about these useless patches!

    They didn't bother my Win7 notebook. The modem still works fine.
    If you go to Device Manager on one of the three, does the modem show up as
    being OK, no yellow or red icon? If you open the modem properties, is there
    a diagnostics tab? If so, click on the 'Query Modem' button and see what the
    results are.

    I have *NOT* installed a single update or patch post SP3 and I don't
    feel my system is vulnerable to spywares, hackers, or trojans! My
    windows Firewall is setup in such a way that "No exceptions is allowed".
    I also don't install any betas or trial softwares.

    The only update/upgrade I care about is for MSE and Windows Defender -
    the rest are simply added extras which I am not interested in unless
    they bring some new functions to Windows or other office applications.

    Ignorance is bliss. You seem blissful. Your system is unprotected.
